It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (

"A feminist perspective on data science: The Feminist Search Tool (text by @anglk)

This essay is a reflection on the development of a feminist search tool and my involvement in its technical and conceptual aspects. It refers to the notion of feminist critical computing in public infrastructures and specifically digital libraries. It brings to light the frictions between the technical aspects of a digital infrastructure and the societal issues it comes to address. This essay studies one1 of the prototypes of the Feminist Search Tool (FST), a collective artistic project that explores ways of engaging with items of digital library catalogues and systems of categorization2. The specific FST I worked on is a digital visualization tool that engages with the collection of the International Homo/Lesbian Information center and Archive (IHLIA) using terms from their Homosaurus, a standalone international LGBTQ linked data vocabulary that is used to describe their collection3. This essay highlights the tensions between technical restrictions and research questions within the working group of the FST."

An Ethico-Phenomenology of Digital Art Practices

Puzzling as it may sounds to some ears, this freshly published book of mine has been inspired a lot by many of you lurkers!

E-book version is the most affordable at the moment. Hardbound for libraries etc.
It will be a few months before the softbound copies will be available.
Still, if any of you get a chance to read it, I would very much welcome the conversation!

Here is some crossplay between a NES and a PC

It is exciting to see it coming to life! If porting modern games concepts to a 8bits CPU and 2 KB of RAM is not an easy task, it is a very rewarding one!

(If you don't know it already: it is an online smash-like, for the NES)

Anyone is using as some interface/environment for a personal or taking system that's more than just browsing/searching through a collection of files? (this is what I'm doing right now)

I'm currently looking for some inspiration/ideas/possibilities for keep using acme also for such usage, for some light -like usage, or something.

Assange's extradition verdict:

"If he wasnt in such tragic health condition -in which he was pushed by brutal UK legal system, bail refusal, super-max detention, isolation, etc.-, he should have been extradited for his journalism"

A victory for #Assange (awaiting for appeal...) a big DEFEAT for free speech, press freeedom and our right to information and communication.


TOMORROW, Jan 4th 2021 - Verdict in Julian #Assange's extradition case to the US, where he faces 175y in a supermax prison for publishing truthful information and revealing war crimes.

Will UK break away from EU Human Rights and send a prized publisher for a life sentence and torture in the US, where officials from both parties called to have him killed?

Stay tuned for that potential #Brexit from Human Rights...

A 2021 Journey from Oregon Trail to A.I. Dungeon


Every week in 2021, I'll be posting an in-depth look at one text-based computer game from each year between 1971 and 2021, starting next week with The Oregon Trail. For each game, we’ll take a meaty deep dive into what it was like to play in the context of its original release (on a chattering , over a dial-up modem in a prototype web , on a brand-new iPad) and how its ideas influenced players and the next generation of makers. When warranted, we’ll dig into old or source code to tease out how each game worked, why it was built the way it was, and what it did that was new, interesting, or successful."
